Tuesday Talmud: Rabbi Fellman resumes his lunchtime Tuesday Talmud sessions with weekly sessions October through May. No prior knowledge of Talmud is necessary and the class is taught in English. Bring a lunch and an opinion and join us for stimulating conversation, plenty of learning, and more than a bit of laughter.

Islam for Jews: Join Rabbi Fellman and guest Muslim thinkers for three sessions exploring Islam, its teachings, and its history.

Israel as Cradle of Religion: Join us for a three-part course on Israel’s importance as a home for world religions. We will explore the history of Israel and the development of religions.
